T.C. Sottek writing for The Verge:

With the acquisition, Nuance says it aims to create natural language interfaces for a variety of devices, including tablets, cars, televisions, navigation devices, music players, and PCs — and since Siri already uses Nuance’s technology, the company stands to make money nearly everywhere voice recognition is used.

The future is bright for voice recognition. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of this acquisition as Vlingo is one of my favorite apps on Android.
